Pebble Cove Apt Homes
My family and I lived in these apartments from 2013-2014. I am going to be giving my honest opinion about our experience at Pebble Cove apartments. The application process was a breeze and Carlos the manager is a nice guy. Now about the apartments, the day of our move-in the apartment was kind of filthy. They were re-doing the bathroom as we were moving in and they only replaced the living room carpet. The apartment was not ready for us when we moved in. My husband and I had to clean the kitchen ourselves because it didn't look like it had even been wiped down! There was crumbs, stains, dead bugs, in the cabinets and the fridge was just as gross. The one thing that bothered me the most was the fleas. Yes, the FLEAS! I was eaten alive and still have the scars on my legs to prove it. They did not change the carpet in the 2 bedrooms (which my husband and I had to deep clean ourselves by renting a deep cleaner vacuum from Home Depot which was $100!) My son wasn't even 1 yet and he was getting bit as well. The manager did call pest control and it took 2 visits before they were killed off. Don't count on getting hot water in the shower either, EVER. The ceiling walls are pop corn and neighbors who have dogs sometimes (most of the time) leave their dogs droppings on the floor, so I never felt comfortable letting my son go out. Neighbors over-pact their back patios and the front as well making the complex look really ghetto. The blinds in the house would always fall off and we were told we'd get charged the next time we asked for replacements when they never replaced them in the first place! There's also not enough trash bins so everyone's trash is literally overflowing. I wish I could give this place a higher rating because the manager was nice. I believe the ratings below come from management. I would like to give potential renters a look at what they're in for.

Recht G A Construction
I am excited to write this review about Recht G A Construction. Let me start by saying Gary is my cousin, but I felt like this review is defnitely warrented. Gary is awesome, great follow through. Excellent work, truly he's a dream if u know any one that ever needs a contractor he's the one to call. When Gary came out to my house he strategized on how to design our tiny crummy kitchen, making it bigger and making the space more user friendly for our family, taling about colors, and flooring, and granite. We had agreed on a price which he stayed with in. His guys were so nice they would not only show up, but they were considerate about the noise, since I work from home sometimes, and my neighbors have small sleeping babies. They showed up when they said they would, and cleaned up everything. Our kitchen looks absolutely incredible, the special touches that shows you not only does Gary really care about the quality of the job, but you can see his heart was in the work. We are considering selling our house and having a newly remodeling kitchen is very attractive to the new buyers, but man, we don't think we want to leave now, not sure about that. I have seen other work that Recht G A Construction has done and it's always really good. I feel very blessed to have an amazing contractor in the family, someone as talented and creative. Seeing our kitchen before it was awful, and it gives me great pleasure to brag, and write this review. I would never use another contractor for a project like this. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Cedar Shores Apartments
Would be OK if they kept it common areas clean, got rid of all the mold inside the walls if possible, and actually told you when Fed Ex has deleivered a package to the office with your name on it. Very lazy staff except the maintenance guy (Armando?) who is very quick and good at fixing things. Good parking. You can dump a flower pot full of dirt in one of the hallways, and the management will step over the mess for days without cleaning it up or asking someone in the staff to clean it up. OK update...they got rid of the maintenance guy who had the drunkard son a few months ago, and it feels safer, and they replaced a bunch of moldy extertior wall wood siding. Yeah! But now there is invasion of dogs living here! The common halls are starting to get infested with fleas. My ankles are getting bitten...yuck! Hope they don't get into my apartment! I don't want to live with pesticide chemicals. Just glad my immediate neighbors don't have one. I often hear them barking from the parking lot late at night etc.

King's Kids Center
A special THANK YOU to all the WONDERFUL ladies who spend their day teaching and caring for not just my son, but all the boys and girls each and every day! You all are very much appreciated and I know that I personally cannot thank each and everyone of you enough for all that you do for my little preschooler J'allen. He's been with you all since he was 8 weeks old and four years later he is still happy to come to school each and everyday. Each one of the teachers at the VINE has contributed to his learning from crawling to walking to being fully potty trained at the age of 2 to driving the new teachers crazy and being able to count to 10 in spanish (which I had no idea about until yesterday morning) and everything else in between! :)

Cristian M Haener Contracting
Haener Contracting did a full remodel of our home and did an absolutely beautiful job. Almost a year later, we're still astounded by the quality of the work that was done. We were told to do a "punch list" after the remodel, which was only a few small details that needed to be completed to our expectations. Haener Contracting and their staff were very pleasant to work with and treated us like family. We were very comfortable throughout the entire process. We would recommend Haener Contracting to anyone looking for professional quality work. We will call on Haener Contracting for any of our future work.

Wee Care Preschool
I found Wee Care because it's close to my home in Clairemont. I have not one bad thing to say about this school. My daughter started out 2 days a week and now goes 5 days. She is 3 1/2 and has been going there for almost a year. Every morning when we arrive we are welcomed with smiles and "good mornings!" My daughter Zoey's teacher Ms. Dianne is wonderful and always has a smile on her face. Zoey actually looks forward to going to school every day! Thank you to all of the teachers and staff that make this place such a wonderful, fun and great learning environment for my daughter!

Utopia Management
Today I had to call Utopia Management regarding my rent. I was confused as to why my rent had not been withdrawn from my account. So I gave Utopia Management today to get this resolved. I spoke with Sarah P. at accounting regarding the issue. She explained that the automatic re-occurring payment was not activated on my account, and that it can have been an accident. Instead of making the situation worse. Sarah told me to make the payment ASAP -which I did, and she waved the late fee due to issue of re-occurring payment. Sarah was extremely helpful, and hospitable. Thank you Sarah P.!!!

Mesa Village Apartments
I usually don’t write reviews but I had to for this place because I had seen many bad reviews for it. This is a great apartment complex if you are looking for a studio. The price is very affordable and set up is good to where the apartment doesn’t feel so small. The management is great and easy to work with; they are always professional, courteous and responsive. The apartment complex is quite and location is very convenient. The property has a nice pool and barbeque area. I highly recommend it if you are looking for an affordable studio.

Utopia Management
I just moved into the condo unit on January 2014 that I am renting from Utopia. I loved how it was easy to apply and Nancy was great to work with through the application process and lease signing. She always followed up with us promptly. Maintenance is good too. We had a couple of things replaced that were not working when we moved (heater went out, dishwasher didn't work). Maintenance came out promptly and had the items replaced. I love living in our new place and great management company helps make our living worry free.

Lund Victor General Contractor Inc
We highly recommend Vic Lund Contracting. We have had experience in the past with other contracters that made us very cautious, but within the first meeting with Vic, we knew we had made and excellen choice by accepting his quote. He never once let us down. He was honest, organized, thorough, and knowledgable. Hes very aware of time and money, and worked hard to save both withour cutting any corners. Our house is beautiful and extremely well-built. Vic made building out dream house an exnjoyable reality.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
